Steady Red Light

A steady red light indicates a potential issue with the power supply or the camera's connection.

  2. Power Cycle and Reset: Unplug the camera, wait for 3 minutes, then reconnect the power and hold the reset button on the camera for 5 seconds. If the red light starts to blink, the camera should be operating normally.
  3. Replace and Retry: If the issue persists, consider replacing the power cable and adapter, and then try to reset the camera again.
